Shrewsbury – Santa took time out of his busy schedule to make a special visit to the Shrewsbury Public Library Dec. 2. He had a full house as he told the children how he finds his way using his compass. It comes in handy, he added, because he “flew straight from Japan to Shrewsbury.”
Santa also talked about how he loves chocolate cookies. And as for the reindeers, he asked the children to leave them celery without peanut butter. It seems peanut butter, he added, keeps Rudolph’s red nose from lighting up.
Children were also invited to sit with him for a photo, with some enjoying that opportunity more than others.
Members of Girl Scout Troop 30187 were also present to help Santa out with the festivities.
